Health and Wellbeing Awards 2019

Innovative Community Engagement for Pharmacy - Vantage Chemist

Innovative community engagement

This award recognises examples of work done by pharmacies to promote health and wellbeing in their heart of their community.  This award was voted on by the LPC and public health representatives.

Vantage Chemist are really proactive in helping their patients and go beyond dispensing drugs. Having seen a rise in mental health prescriptions they dispense, they thought this was something they could help with, so they held an anxiety workshop at the Pharmacy.

Patients were invited to anxiety sessions at the pharmacy run by a specialist mental health practitioner. Feedback was fantastic, with several patients asking for more sessions to be put on. These were also combined with a fund raising drive for Coventry and Warwickshire MIND.

Quote from the pharmacy: “We want patients to know they are never alone. We will be doing more sessions like this, giving our community more opportunities to come in.“
